Buick is making sure you can enjoy its new convertible all year round. The American carmaker recently released a video highlighting how watertight the Cascada convertible seal is. To ensure that your Buick Cascada convertible is as waterproof as possible, the luxury carmaker literally “makes it rain” on the convertible’s assembly line.
“Convertibles are best enjoyed when it’s warm and sunny, but Cascada has been designed and engineered to be used year-round, regardless of the weather,” said John Dolch, program quality manager for Cascada. “Not only is Cascada’s top engineered to be weatherproof in extreme conditions, but each and every Cascada built will also be put through a rigorous water test.”
To test the seal, Buick uses specialized water test booths, which are located at the end of the convertible’s production line. Each booth combines the power of 124 individual nozzles to immerse the Cascada in a miniature rainstorm for ten minutes, emitting a total of 1.9 gallons of water per minute. This adds up to the equivalent of 1.23 inches of rain in a minute.
